Save Wonnarua heritage from Glencore’s coal mine expansion

Join us as we walk from NSW Parliament (Macquarie St) to the NSW Independent Planning Commission (135 King St, Sydney CBD) to support the Plains Clan of the Wonnarua People in the fight to save this place.

Indigenous cultural heritage of Ravensworth Estate and surrounds in the Hunter Valley is threatened right now by Glencore’s Glendell coal mine expansion (a decision by the IPC is due in October).
Open cut mining at this location would greatly diminish or destroy what should otherwise become a place of truth-telling and reconciliation.
The Heritage Council of NSW has “emphasised the exceptional importance of the site, its shared history and the intrinsic connection” between massacre sites, Aboriginal cultural heritage, and the colonial homestead.
